Introduction: Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts

I am certainly ready for autumn weather, and these soft, baked pumpkin spice donuts have the perfect sweetness and fill your kitchen with a warm, comforting aroma. They are sure to please!

Step 1: Ingredients

- 1-3/4 cup of all-purpose flour

- 1 tsp of salt

- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon

- 2 tsp of baking powder

- 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg

- 1/4 tsp of ground ginger

- 3/4 cup of white, granulated sugar

- 3/4 cup of light, packed brown sugar

- 1/2 cup of canola, coconut, or vegetable oil

- 3 eggs

- 1-1/2 cup of pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling, just purée)

- 1 tsp of vanilla extract

For topping (cinnamon-sugar mixture):

- 2 tsp of ground cinnamon

- 1/2 cup of white, granulated sugar

Step 2: Prepare & Mix

1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease two 6 donut pans (I had to use one twice since this recipe makes 14 donuts).

2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine white sugar and brown sugar. With an electric mixer, beat in canola oil, eggs, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract.

Step 3: Beat

4. Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture, and beat until well combined.

Step 4: Fill & Bake

5. Pipe donut batter into donut pans, and bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Step 5: Toppings

6. While donuts are baking, mix cinnamon and sugar well. After you take donuts out of oven, and while they are sill warm, dip them in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place on wire cooling rack. Enjoy! Happy Autumn!
